IZQUERDA UNIDA LOS VERDES - CONVOCATORIA POR ANDALUCIA
MARCH 2015 ELECTION RESULT - 7% = 5 SEATS
In June 2013 Antonio Maillo (49, Lucena Cordoba) became the Coordinator General of the IULV-CA replacing Diego Valverde. The party was formed in 1984 with the objective to transform Andalucia into a left-wing alternative. It has 10,000 militants and more than 1000 local council members with 86 mayors, with as many as 20 Andalucia deputies in the Junta (1996) and as few as six (2000, 2004, 2008). The present party is actually itself a coalition grouping of various parties. The Greens joined in the mid2000s and one of the founding groups the Candidatura de Unidad de los Trabajodores (CUT) left in February 2015.
In the elections in 2012 the IU had 12 deputies, an increase of 6 from the previous election mainly taken from the PSOE, with whom they pacted in order to form a government. The IU made certain demands, including more transparency, a parliamentary enquiry into the ERE corruption scandal (which in the event was a fiasco) and three members on the Consejo de Gobierno (cabinet) including their leader Diego Valverde as Vice President of the Junta de Andalucia. Rafael Rodriguez became Consejero de Turismo and a colleague became Consejera de Vivienda.
Policies are consistent with a communist party and support the workers of Andalucia, the abolition of social inequality and support cottage and rural industry. Agrarian reform is an aim as well as the departure of the USA from the bases of Moron and Rota.
